Hotfix Package 2 for Microsoft Application Virtualization 5.0 Service Pack 3 is now available

As announced by Microsoft on the 27th May the hotfix Package 2 for App-V 5.0 Sp3 is now available

The following issues were addressed:

  • Issue 1: Office Click-to-Run applications do not start when you try to open Office documents from SharePointApp-V 5.0 tried to virtualize Office Click-to-Run applications. This broke integration with Microsoft SharePoint and prevented Office Click-to-Run applications from successfully starting when the user tried to edit Office documents that are hosted on SharePoint sites.
  • Issue 2: The App-V 5.0 client held a handle to the user profile that prevented the user profile service from deleting the profile when a user logged offThe App-V 5.0 client service held a handle to the user’s copy-on-write directory. This prevented the profile from being deleted when the user logged off. In turn, a temporary profile was created when the user logged on again. This prevented the publication of applications that were allowed for publication for the user.

Seems not to be interesting at all, however if you look into the change log here you can see the following entry:

It was announced that Chrome 43 is going to use “AppContainer” Integrity Level for their renderer processes. However it seemed not to work properly (seeĀ )

Looks like they pulled back for the time being.
